Seagull at the Bridgeport Reservoir

Seagull at the Bridgeport Reservoir

Another look at the Bridgeport Reservoir, and another look directly into the sun, as per my earlier Mono Lake photograph. The seagull was a fortuitous addition to the scene. The landscape looked completely different to my eye. I could see detail and color not visible here. Yet it's that abstraction of information that I think makes this photograph work. Experience, in fact, taught me that I could make an image more abstract than realistic, and experience taught me it would please my aesthetic sensibility.
